The Tech.MN Podcast


Dec 31, 2019

On Episode 17 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and Jac Stark, community manager at tech.mn, welcome Ian Levitt, Founder of Studio Americana on a special TCSW edition of The Tech.MN Podcast to talk broadcasting and podcasting.

Ian shares his journey to starting Studio Americana, a full-service podcasting studio. He walks us through starting in radio at age 15 and working through several markets until he went out on his own to launch Studio Americana. We talk about the reasons why someone should start a podcast, what causes certain podcasts to rise to the top, and how his team replicates the radio experience for people.

The conversation dives into the challenges of entrepreneurship, developing systems for your business, and keeping up with the change of technology and industry. Kevin and Jac share what they’ve learned about podcasting and Kevin addresses some controversial feedback he has gotten since the launch of The tech.mn podcast.
